#BanTrophyHunting reserves and the organizations like @VETPAW that supports and operates on them! Share this and let’s take a stand against this bullshit! Our children would like to take their kids & still see the animals we grew up watching on @natgeochannel! Someone who was fortunate enough to acquire a piece of land that has some of the most beautiful & endangered species in the world on it, shouldn’t be allowed to profit by killing them off & letting the entire world lose them. VETPAW also needs to be questioned and prosecuted. Their NPO motto states they train anti-poachers in Africa, but in reality they pose as anti-poachers in Africa where it is illegal for them to do so. They use hunting reserves so they can legally carry weapons in pictures on Instagram, because the weapons are legal and allowed for hunters on these reserves. It’s a scam & they are misrepresenting their NPO & misleading their donors by using misc veterinarians and organizations like @RescueRhinoProject to actually help Rhinos while they just stand around and pose for the videos and take credit like they are doing it. Donations roll in, thanks to the help from VETPAW and VP board member @TimothySykes & his supporting @Karmagawa and also influencers like @SamKolder and even @TheRealTarzann! This post puts them all on the Buffalo Kloof Hunting Reserve helping and supporting their trophy hunting reserve. Link in our bio to see where VETPAW operates! Share & be heard! Ask VETPAW the questions u need answers from and don’t take their lies of working alongside the South African Police. DM us and we will give you a number to call to the @sapoliceservice_za and find out they do not work with VETPAW nor is VETPAW legally able to train or be anti-poachers in Africa. Demand answers! They are a non-profit 501c3 organization that hasn’t declared ANY of the hundreds of thousands they have publicly received to the IRS in 3 years! Finally, our last picture proves that VETPAW founder @Ryan_vetpaw lied to the influencers he used for donations about being on a hunting reserve. @irsnews@dailysunsa@the_citizen_za@streetwiseprofessor@badboi@rapportsa@vicenews@elisha__h@reneeherbert_@johnny_fpv

Veterinarians already tried to save this Rhino from poachers, then it was killed
Veterinarians already tried to save this Rhino from poachers, then it was killed by a trophy hunter! We need to get “Conservation” organizations OFF hunting reserves, like @VETPAW is, and #BanTrophyHunting! How can u support hunting reserves & operate on them @Ryan_Vetpaw, while taking in donations under the motto “Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife”?!?! These hunting reserves only care about money, not the animals & have everyone fooled that they don’t mind letting hunters blast away at all their beautiful Giraffe, Zebra, Hippo, Leopards & Baboons, but turn down way more money to protect Rhino & Elephants. They don’t have a heart for anything but money! VETPAW operates on 2 hunting reserves, The Greater Kuduland Hunting Reserve & The Buffalo Kloof Private Game Reserve, where people pay to kill animals. We have had reputable sources tell us the GKS HAS DONE Rhino & Elephant hunts in past. We also have not gotten an answer from VETPAW or the GKS, where VETPAW is headquartered, about what they did w/ the horns that they removed from their current Rhinos. We have been told by a few sources that they stashed them to wait for legislation to change so they can sell them, or took them to the black market. We cannot confirm this though, but does it really matter? Would you donate ur hard earned money to VETPAW knowing they work only on hunting reserves? That they haven’t disclosed financials even to the IRS for 3 yrs? That they block & ban their own donors & real anti-poachers when asked about big issues on their Instagram? Why would they not answer a single question if they were so innocent & good conversationalist? VETPAW u are making the Military, the Conservation Organization community, & many donors look very bad and u don’t even care! Speak up for ur organization now @Ryan_vetpaw & @streetwiseprofessor! Keep asking them questions on their IG everyone! #Repost@preserveourwild ・・・ This beautiful black Rhino, having been treated by vets for wounds incurred by poachers he then dies from bullets from a trophy hunter. This is not a solution. Like this if you want an end to trophy hunting #bantrophyhunting

@VETPAW, everyone is posting that it’s #WorldPangolinDay! You are a (non-profit🙄)conservation organization that stands for Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife. What the F’ are you protecting, besides the same few Rhinos on the fenced in hunting reserve where you operate? Why can’t you make a single post that shows you and your team actually doing something to help ANY animals, without proper conservationist in the picture and video doing it for you? Just one. Can you give the donors that? You took all their money with no questions and now won’t answer theirs when they question you back. You don’t do your @IRSnews financials, you don’t show any progress of anything, you don’t show what you have done. What is this bullshit? You have taken so much in donations, you could save every Rhino in Africa! Where is the money going?!? Speaking of what VETPAW stands for, how the F’ do you protect African Wildlife when you operate only on Hunting Reserves?!? In case anyone out there doesn’t realize this, hunters in Africa cause more suffering than poachers most of the time. They are rich amateur shooters who usually don’t shoot straight and wound the animal first. Some use bow and arrows! Then they have to chase it around the fenced in enclosure with vehicles until they find it and kill it. Sometimes it takes hours or even days. When the animal survives it is wounded for the rest of its life. How can an animal conservation company work on, help finance, and support a hunting reserve? A small fenced in area where the animals can’t even escape. @irsnews

@VETPAW, why is every photo of you doing anything, that is actually saving Rhinos or helping them, done by other people and you are just “assisting” to get the photo op? You don’t even give credit to this man or who he works with. “The Treating Veterinarian” Wow! Much respect to him at least, and way to make sure you keep getting the publicity and donations, instead of the real people that are making a difference, also like @RhinoRescueProject. They are the biggest part of all your videos that got you hundreds of thousands of reported donations and they got $4000, which barely covered their costs for the infusions. What the hell is anyone giving you money for? What happened to all the guns you use to post with, and going on patrols? Its boring as hell when you operate on the same two fenced in hunting reserves and tend to and feed hay to a small group of the same Rhinos. People don’t send you money because you just keep showing the same Rhinos and have your unqualified vets taking pictures with them every day. What the hell have you done and where are the horns that was cut off the Rhinos at the the hunting reserve where you operate on(GKS)? Everyone is getting tired of you running and hiding from the questions and blocking and deleting them when they ask. Why don’t you tell people where their F’ money is going?!?!? You haven’t filed your IRS financials in 3 years and in process of losing your 501c3 status soon. When was the last time you were even in Africa @Ryan_vetpaw? @irsnews

Repost from @natgeowild Photo by @amivitale // Fatu is one of only two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, following the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino who died due to age related complications on March 19th at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in Kenya. Fatu and her mother Najin are the last of the species remaining in the world and may hold the keys to saving the entire species.  Sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, though scientists are considering other options involving Fatu and Najin, including stem cell procedures and harvesting eggs. If there is meaning in Sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. This can be our wake-up call. In a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals. Follow @amivitale to learn how to get involved and support @olpejeta’s vital conservation work. @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice@thephotosociety @natgeo @nature_org @nature_africa@safari_park_dvur_kralove #LastManStanding#SudanForever #WorthMoreAlive #OlPejetaRhinos#NorthernWhiteRhinos #protectrhinos#DontLetThemDisappear #rhinos #saverhinos#stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #africa#everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale

I remember as a child when people told me that our generation could witness the extinction of many great species, including the Rhino 🦏 . I didn’t believe them. Though it really hit home as the world witnessed the passing of Sudan, the last male White Rhino on earth. Together we need to help and support foundations like @rhinosirf and @careforwild who are helping rescue, rehabilitate and protect these magnificent animals. ❤️🦏 #protectrhinos#stopthepoaching#wearechangemakers#togetherwecanmakeadifference

How lucky we felt to get close to these beautiful creatures last weekend 🦏🦏🦏 But
How lucky we felt to get close to these beautiful creatures last weekend 🦏🦏🦏 But you can’t see rhinos without the heartbreaking reminder that poaching is a huge crisis in South Africa. There are more than two brutal and illegal rhino killings each day (over half of them in the Kruger area) to meet enormous demand for their horn - predominantly in Asian markets, where it’s sold as traditional medicine and status symbols for the uber-wealthy. Doesn’t this feel absurd, given it’s made of keratin, just like our hair and fingernails? With cautious optimism all round, we did hear that poaching numbers are down on previous years. And when we left, it had been over 500 days since a poacher was successful in the Sabi Sands after major efforts and investment to protect the borders of the reserve. But until the demand goes away, the sad likelihood is that poachers and traffickers will exploit other less-protected areas of Africa instead 💔 . . . . #wearefaraway#sabisands#rhinoconservation#antipoaching

1. A hippo shot and killed for sport at the @BuffaloKloofPrivateGameReserve. The same place we just proved @VETPAW and @TimothySykes@Karmagawa operated on with their influencers including @therealtarzann and @samkolder. Scroll back two posts to see the details. The hunting reserve also mentioned on their post that VETPAW was building a new training center on their sport hunting property. 2. A hippo shot and killed for sport at the Greater Kuduland Hunting Safari, where we have proved many times over that houses VETPAW’s official South African HQ. Also the very same hunting reserve that @Ryan_vetpaw and VETPAW brings in students for money to “monitor” animals to help with conservation efforts. Yes, they take money from people and then take them on a hunting reserve to make them feel like they are helping. Reality is almost all the animals at the GKS are hunted and killed for sport by wealthy foreigners that get flown in on their private hangar. 3. VETPAW’s post on their official Instagram picturing two small Hippos and stating “Nothing like a little hippo in the morning. These orphans now have a tight family unit of 2. It is always so heartwarming when you see these little orphan strangers deciding that they can hang out and make their own little family together. Wouldn’t it be so wonderful if life was this simple?” You know what else can make baby hippo’s orphans VETPAW? Sport killing their mothers on the very same 2 reserves you operate on! You post all this bullshit sympathy and sweet animal posts to get donations, while partnering with hunting reserves behind the donors backs without giving them full disclosures. Long story short, VETPAW illegally protects animals in fenced in hunting reserves, so that their owners/partners can make profits from the kills instead of losing them to poachers or anything else. Did you really think you would get away with completely misleading animal loving donors when they can just look at all of your instagrams and use googles to get all the info we posted? Are you really that stupid, or just so full of ego you think you can get away with anything?

For all of you who has been messaging us because u want to report the authorities on @VETPAW, here is the info: 1. Go to http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf 2. VETPAWs EIN # is 46-4641830 3. Fill out the form. 4. Print and mail off. Their company information can be found: 1. https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos 2. https://www.charitywatch.org/charities 3. EIN: 46-4641830 The only IRS filings they show are 2014 & 2015, & they claimed under $50k both years. NOTHING SINCE! If you look at Guide Star, it’s interesting to note that they show $0 gross receipts & $0 assets to this date. We are already doing our part, but it only helps to have more filings if u feel the need. Now that the cat is clearly out of the bag, please share our account to anyone who may need the info. Though @Ryan_vetpaw has tried his best to hide the fact that they are not working w/ or on hunting reserves, we proved it. They just post random stuff now that the @TimothySykes@Karmagawa influencers aren’t there filming what the @RhinoRescueProject was actually doing. If u haven’t seen our last post & comments... ALL the infusions that were done on the @SamKolder viral YouTube video “KOLD - The War Against Poaching” was done by @RhinoRescueProject while @VETPAW just stood around them. After, @VETPAW made out w/ $260k in donations from @Karmagawa & @SamKolder, while the @RhinoRescueProject made roughly $4000, which covered their costs. @VETPAW has almost 500k views on youtube with a description on it that says they own two Rhino sanctuaries & need money to build another, then donation link. 12m views on IG. 1. @VETPAW doesn’t own any Rhino Sanctuaries. 2. They have never posted about them or that they are building a new one. Where is all this money going?What about posts on patrols, w/ guns hunting poachers, making arrests & confiscating horns? They post nothing about this, because as you can see on the websites above, their NPO is registered with the mission statement “Utilizing the skills of U.S. Veterans to train anti-poachers Wildlife Rangers and support their communities”. Nothing about BEING anti-poachers or OWNING 2 Rhino sanctuaries w/ intent to build more.

This is a post by the official @buffalokloofprivategamereserve that puts all of @TimothySykes influences for @VETPAW on their game hunting reserve helping. A reserve where u can pay money to kill Baboons, various monkeys, Zebra & many other beautiful animals that are trapped in their fenced in reserve. @warnerippon takes profits from paying hunters to allow them to come & shoot the faces off his beautiful innocent wildlife in an enclosed area that they can’t escape from, for sport! CLICK THE LINK IN OUR BIO TO SEE THE OFFICIAL BUFFALO KLOOF WEBSITE AND ANIMALS U CAN KILL FOR SPORT! The people BK listed on their reserve... SHOCKING FIRST ONE! IG Animal lover @therealtarzann! Who continues to build his following w/ videos from this trip. Can u imagine?! Helping a reserve that kills for sport all the beautiful animals he acts like he loves. Many of his posts playing w/ an actual baboon, ironically enough. Then they list @VETPAW@timothysykes@samkolder@karmagawa@elisha__h@reneeherbert_@johnny_fpv@jbxcreative@chelseakauai@badboi@android.4.0.3@vladays & most importantly @rhinorescueproject, WHO ACTUALLY DID THE INFUSIONS, as u can see from the Kolder YouTube video. No one in VETPAW uniforms did them, but they had no problems taking the donations for it. Did u get any donations for this @RhinoRescueProject? Because on our 2nd post by Buffalo Kloof, it read Tim Sykes @Karmagawa donated $250k to VETPAW and @SamKolder did another $10k. How much of the $260,000 did you get just from this trip, not even counting when Kolder’s video went viral with their “Owning 2 Rhino Sanctuaries” statements & donation link attached under it? We’re guessing not much. Our 3rd Post, BK states that VETPAW will soon be assisting them on their upcoming on-site training center!! What!? How can an animal conservation organization that is taking donations from animal lovers help & operate on 2 private fenced in hunting reserves!? How sick is this?! How soulless is this entire group of people!? Meanwhile, @TimothySykes is crying all over @karmagawa’s Instagram account about helping poor abused animals, while parading around on hunting reserves in Africa that sport kill. Share!

After blocking & deleting one of the real anti-poachers in South Africa, @danielspencer_, because he called VETPAW out on their fraud & lies. They went on to disable all comments & blocked all of their followers that were questioning anything about what they do & how they do it. Simple questions anyone that gives money to someone should know. But also questions @ryan_vetpaw and his partner @streetwiseprofessor can’t answer apparently. So it’s a one way show of them showing you just what they want to get your money & not talking to u after. Anyway, we have quite an army of concerned people that wants answers as to why VETPAW states all over that they are anti-poachers, but don’t post anything that would incriminate them with the @sapoliceservice_za. Instead lying that the @sapoliceservice_za is a part of all their operations. Again, not what the Police told us in an official statement. So to try & look like they are yet again doing something, but not incriminating themselves, they post this post today! 🤦🏻‍♂️ And I quote.... “Night vision enables us to keep a keen eye on the big greys, it’s amazing how bright everything looks through the lens.” Amazing information! Now we can finally see where the hundreds of thousands of dollars they have claimed to have taken publicly is going. Huge news about technology that was introduced to the German Army as early as 1939! So in case any of u guys are wondering about what happens when you look through a night vision scope, and haven’t seen a Hollywood war movie since the Vietnam war, VETPAW is here to educate you.... “It’s amazing how bright everything looks”. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ The sad part is that we are almost certain that VETPAW founder @Ryan_vetpaw is actually making all of these posts himself at the moment. The man who will setup your SA anti-poaching training in America without any permission by the SA police and authority. Then take you to a reserve that is a hunting reserve where actual poachers may show up and no one from VETPAW is licensed or allowed to protect you. BUT, they do have night vision now apparently so hopefully u can run to @danielspencer_’s APU for help. 🤦🏻‍♂️🙄🤦🏻‍♂️🙄

Brother @jemu_mwenda Repost & Photo from @amivitale Fatu, one of the last northern white rhinos alive on the planet, nuzzles her keeper, James Mwenda, at Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta). You can help support this vital place. For a contribution of just $10, you'll get a chance to WIN a guided trip with me here, Kenya’s @olpejeta. You'll have the chance to meet Fatu and Najin, the last two northern white rhinos in the world, and the incredible people who care for them. You will also get a brand new @Nikonusa Z 6 and 24-70mm f/4 S lens to capture every unforgettable moment. A trailblazer for conservation, @olpejeta also houses the largest black rhino population in East Africa, and is home to elephants, lions, giraffe, zebra and much more. For a contribution of just $10, you can help support the work that will preserve these animals for generations to come and hopefully win the trip of a lifetime for yourself and a friend. Enter at omaze.com/rhinos (link in profile). Fatu is the granddaughter of Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino who passed away in March due to age-related complications. They were brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralove in the #Czechrepublic in 2009. We are witnessing extinction on our watch and must help them by speaking out and supporting conservation efforts worldwide, especially among the indigenous communities who are on the front lines every day against poaching. In a world of 7 billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves. The fate of these animals is linked to our own fate and seeing ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature is also about saving all of humanity. We all must get involved. @nrt_kenya@nature_africa@tusk_org@kenyawildlifeservice@thephotosociety@natgeo#LastManStanding#SudanForever#WorthMoreAlive#OlPejetaRhinos#NorthernWhiteRhinos#protectrhinos#DontLetThemDisappear#rhinos#saverhinos#stoppoaching#kenya#northernkenya#africa#everydayafrica#photojournalism#nikon#d5#nikonambassador#nikonnofilter#natu

So your public IRS file says you haven’t filed your financials since 2015! Since then is when all the money came in, according to all the posts about it. Where is all the money going? How much is it? 2014 and 2015 you claimed less than $50k, but that is nothing to the posted donations you have collected now. On another public database it states your company is listed as training and mentoring anti-poachers. Where is the job of being an Anti-Poacher listed on your 501x3 NPO filings? Why have you posted so many pics with guns and saying your out on patrols? Even in the viral video with @SamKolder actually going out on patrols with your @VETPAW team. That’s not your organizations job description and it’s illegal for you to do in SA. Right @sapoliceservice_za? Where are all the pics and posts of your guys “training and mentoring” anti-poachers? So you are going to select candidates from an Instagram post and train them in anti-poaching training and mentorship without any prior knowledge of this type of work in this type of region? Are you also going to start hiring and training the @sapoliceservice_za as well? 🤦🏻‍♂️ Or is it that you are specifically targeting a certain type of vet that you can get to sign NDA’s and can control? By the way, as we predicted, nice cover by blocking @danielspencer_ after you disabled the comments where he called you out on your BS post. You can’t even face the real anti-poachers that are in SA on the internet. Then you banned your own follower, @helpmetyler for just asking questions that you obvious can’t put a legit answer to. Again, as we have said many times, only one reason to run away, block and hide, is being guilty. What a joke! We want to thank all you that are coming out and helping to put an end to this circus. They are disrespecting the Military, the Vets, the donors that are being severely misled, and the whole Rhino conservation community. We appreciate your support and please share and story us if you want to help take action. If you feel like reporting them, though we are already in talks, https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/ and search VETPAW.

WOW! Look at @VETPAW and @Ryan_Vetpaw dodging these questions!!! Why can’t you just answer the people that follow and support you Ryan?!?!? @VetPaw: VETPAW: “We work closely with the South African Police Services which oversee all of our operations.” What?!?!?!?!??? That’s not what we were told Ryan! Hey @sapoliceservice_za, you “work closely with @VETPAW on all of their operations”???? What about the whole “they are not licensed anti-poachers and can’t do any anti-poaching duties in South Africa. They can only carry hunting weapons” statement?!? @sapoliceservice_za Then of course Ryan runs and hides when he can’t talk his way out of the very concerning questions he is being asked. Probably will block these people next. Ryan why can’t you address your own followers with the truth!?!? @sapoliceservice_za VETPAW: “We do not divulge location as it puts the wildlife at huge risk.” No.... you don’t divulge the location because it’s The Greater Kuduland Hunting Reserve and Buffalo Kloof Hunting Reserve. We have already proved it, as did your influencer and Sams video, among other way more valuable sources. How do you train anti-poachers in America? You aren’t even anti-poachers now! Can you not see how absolutely ridiculous that is? Anyone can just use google to see you are so unbelievably wrong. ?!?!?!?!? @sapoliceservice_za ?!?!?!?!? @irsnews

Hello everyone, meet Daniel Spencer(@danielspencer_). A REAL South African Anti-Poacher and look at his comments on @VETPAW’s latest post about their circus act US Candidate course! It’s like how naive and stupid do you think people are @Ryan_vetpaw and @streetwiseprofessor? Anyone can look up the real requirements to be an APU in SA. It is my opinion you and your board have lost complete touch with reality and it’s sick you keep taking good peoples money over this shit. You can see all over the internet, VETPAWs claims of being anti-poachers and protecting Rhinos, but why do they not post the content of an Anyi-poaching unit, like Daniel? They..... 1. They post conservation videos with @rhinorescueproject actually doing all the work, as they stand around taking credit. 2. They beg for donations. 3. They post other peoples content to create sympathy donations, even though the content has nothing to do with what they are doing. 4. The beg for donations more. 5. They promote @SamKolder’s video that states VETPAW has 2 Rhino sanctuaries in SA, WHAT!?!?!?!? 6. They post pictures of their under-qualified vets in SA standing around looking at animals and saying they will actually do something. 7. They post about “experiences” where they charge you thousands of dollars to go to a fenced in hunting reservation and pretend to monitor and help animal conservation, when all of the animals there are for sport hunting by Howard Knotts family game reserve. For the last 38 years actually. 8. They post about these dumb US candidate courses that are completely irrelevant to becoming an APU in South Africa. The guys are even smiling in the photos. It’s insane! Ask VETPAW to post themselves with guns and say they are doing APU duties and tag where they are in SA, and see what they do. Nothing. Question them more, then they will block you like they will delete this Daniel Spencer post and block him next. Same as their Board Member @TimothySykes will do if you ask him. Luckily this is all about to end soon, we are just trying to make you guys aware of all this before you waste your money and become very disheartened in the conservation community. These guys don’t represent it!

“Vetpaw proudly watching over our big greys. Thank you to every person that has donated towards our mission to keep them safe from poachers.” “Toko our little rescue pup just loves going out with the guys on fence patrols.” 1. Vetpaw has big greys? Really? We were finally “officially” told that you operate on the Greater Kuduland Hunting Reserve. That would make them their greys yea? Also what is left to do? They are de-horned already and in a fenced in area that any poachers know has all this media attention now. Problem solved. Not to mention @VETPAW operates as if it’s protecting animals on a HUNTING RESERVE. Ethical? 2. How are you doing patrols? For what? Poachers? If the South African Police has already confirmed that VETPAW is not able to do any anti-poaching activities, nor are they licensed to do so, what are you doing? If a group of guys goes to a foreign Country, enters as tourists, hunts down, arrests, harms or kills local citizens of that Country that they personally suspect as poachers, isn’t that terrorism? Why would the @sapoliceservice_za stand for this when the @policetanzania did their job already in 2015 by kicking you out of Tanzania? You take photos with guns but they are REGISTERED HUNTING weapons. Ones that sport kill animals on the reserve you operate on like Giraffe, Hippos, Zebras and Leopards. Ironically enough the same place you charge thousands of dollars for people to come and monitor leopards in some kind of conservation effort. How do you divide the GKS hunting reserve for those who you charge to help leopards and those that pay to kill them? The IRS has already been contacted and Ryan Tate(@ryan_vetpaw) and Lynn Westover(@streetwiseprofessor) are going to have to answer to the fraudulent accusations of misrepresenting the VETPAW NPO for donations and funding. So many miss representations already. Where are your 2 Rhino sanctuaries? @irsnews Anyway, @sapoliceservice_za this is going to be big news soon and what are you going to say when you were given all the evidence and did nothing, unlike Tanzania who got rid of these guys immediately? @sapoliceservice_za@bbcafrica@cnnafrica@the_citizen_za@dailysunsa@rapportsa

LOL..... IS VETPAW OPERATING ON AN ASIAN HUNTING FARM NOW? 😂 Reposted from @destinationalpha - Here is the latest post by @Karmagawa. The organization that @VETPAW board member @TimothySykes founded and operates the Instagram of. Interesting, because it talks about their trip to Africa and the photos and videos they took and asked everyone to share them. You would think a board member of a South African Rhino Conservation Organization, that is taking in so much money and making more with research “experiences” would know the difference between an Indian Rhino and an African Rhino, when saying to share “their” photos. You went to Africa Tim, not India. This is not your picture and just another example of how embarrassingly stupid it is that you guys have made it this far and made so much money from caring individuals that want to actually help conservation. Stop this madness already. VETPAW isn’t a licensed APU, they don’t post anything that real APU’s post. No one knows where all this money is going, since VETPAW employees are on “tourist” visas in South Africa and not allowed to even be Anti-Poachers. Lastly, the most obvious thing VETPAW does is take credit for other organizations work, beg for money and post pictures looking like they are actually doing something. *Notice @VETPAW liked it and didn’t notice either... #Unreal#vetpaw#vetpawexperiences#vetpawexperience#wildlifecrime#rhino#rhinohorn#rhinos#counterpoaching#antipoaching#poaching#timothysykes#samkolder#therealtarzann#protectrhinos#savetherhino#wwf#worldwildlifefund#wildlifeconservation#ryantate#stoppoaching#vice#joerogan#60minutes@joerogan@vice@bbcafrica@cnnafrica@michaelfmoore#karmagawa - #regrann

Video by @amivitale // In addition to caring for orphaned elephants, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) also cares for orphaned giraffe, endangered Grevy’s Zebra and the black rhino Loijipu. Loijipu arrived at the sanctuary when he was only two days old - the size of a dinner plate. Today, he’s a sweet and spirited rhino who has grown strong and has already begun the process of being re-introduced into the wild where the people at Reteti hope he can one day reunite with his mother. Although he hasn’t met his mother yet, so far his return to the wild is going wonderfully.

You can't beat that. The funniest thing about you picking this picture to discredit me is, this picture is of me feeding rescued lion from a canned hunting farm, exactly where you profit from and lie about.

Ever wondered how you keep track of a black rhino in the Zambian bush? Probably not... but I’ll tell you anyway. To protect them from poachers and make their monitoring easier, a transmitter is put in their horn so wildlife scouts and can find them by air or by foot patrol to check they are ok. This rhino was darted from a helicopter to sedate the animal while the vets do their work. The rhino was blindfolded and measurements were taken for records. It’s important to keep the rhino in a safe position while it’s unconscious. The rhino was sprayed with water to keep it cool while a hole is carefully drilled into its horn. A rhino horn is made of keratin just like your hair and finger nails and it will grow back given time. It’s used in traditional medicine and as a status symbol in a few countries which led to the animal being declared nationally extinct in Zambia in 1998. A small number were reintroduced some years later. Anyway... the transmitter is then put into the horn, the rhino is given a drug to wake it up and everyone scrambles back to the helicopter. Apart from some of the vets who climbed trees to stay near while it woke up to make sure it was ok. It was a bit drowsy but got its bearings and headed off into the bush soon after — 🦏🇿🇲 . . . _______________________________________________________ . . . #savetherhino#conservation#environmentaleducation#zambia#wildlifeconservation#wildlifeconservationsociety#conservationeducation#northluangwa#savetherhinos#stoppoaching#rhinohorn#rhinohornisnotmedicine#wildlifemonitoring#wildlifecrime#antipoaching#wildlifedocumentary#rhino#blackrhino#blackrhinoceros#rhinoceros#rhinos#protectwildlife#protectrhinos#conservationist#veterinarian#savethewildlife#educational#wildlife_lover#wildlife_captures#wildlife_inspired

Reposted from destinationalpha Meet @TimothySykes. Board Member of @VETPAW and a huge donator to their cause. The more we dig up on him, the more we learn to disrespect him, while understanding his beneficial link to VETPAW. It’s very obvious that his trading course is all he cares about, and will do just about anything to promote it. Including posting pictures of himself trading at the Buffalo Kloof Hunting Reserve. That’s right, a fenced in area that protects its animals so that paying hunters can come in and kill them. Just google it. No need to take our word. Same as the Greater Kuduland Safari Reserve that houses VETPAWs headquarters. If this photos isn’t enough, swipe right to watch one of the most ridiculous videos we have ever seen of such selfishness during a truly selfless moment of importance. It’s disgusting to watch. Though you can easily see that Buffalo Kloof is a Hunting Reserve, all over the Internet, we added a couple of pics of that as well. Going by VETPAWs latest posts on Instagram, they are desperate to raise money right now, but why? What is it that they do? None of the legit organizations we talked to know, nor do any of the legit anti-poachers and key people on the ground in South Africa. All the facts and statements show us is that they are just military vet tourist on a hunting reserve illegally carrying guns and acting like anti-poachers to influencers and cameras. Though the employees on the ground with VETPAW make very low incomes, and use very poor and inadequate gear, money is pouring in under the control of @Ryan_Vetpaw. Where is it going. “A rock star life” is what we have heard over and over again. One thing Ryan did good for himself was find Tim. Sykes and his influencers have boosted VETPAW to having a huge following and much greater donations, while all the real organizations still suffer while fighting the ever-growing battle to save the rhinos. Let’s also not forget that VETPAW was KICKED OUT OF TANZANIA. You can google that too. Trying to raise money while using distasteful marketing. #vetpaw@karmagawa#wildlifecrime#antipoaching#poaching#timothysykes#protectrhinos#savetherhino#ryantate#karmaga

#PhotographyForGood#repost from @amivitale | Photo by @amivitale. Here is a powerful example of the work being done to save these incredible creatures. In 2014, I witnessed a group of Samburu warriors encounter a rhino for the first time in their lives at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife). Only their grandfathers saw rhinos in the wild and these young men had never even seen a photo of one. Based on stories and their own imaginations, they expected the young rhinos to be as big as elephants, as dangerous as lions and for their horns to be flexible, like an elephant's trunk. Much-needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife, but very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the frontlines of the poaching wars. The Nature Conservancy in Africa (@nature_africa), the Northern Rangelands Trust (@nrt_kenya) and Lewa @lewa_wildlife are doing incredible work to strengthen these communities, who hold the key to saving Africa's great animals. Together we can work to save them - visit and support the communities that protect them. @tusk_org@kenyawildlifeservice@thephotosociety@natgeo@nature_org@nikonusa@sdzsafaripark@synology.official#WorthMoreAlive#protectrhinos#DontLetThemDisappear#rhinos#saverhinos#stoppoaching#kenya#northernkenya#magicalkenya#africa#everydayafrica#photojournalism#nikonusa#nikonlove#nikonambassadors#amivitale

#PhotographyForGood#repost from @amivitale | Photo by @amivitale. Kamara is nuzzled by black rhino Kilifi who he hand-raised along with two other baby rhinos at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable orphaned animals. This area was once home to one of the densest black rhino populations. Today, most locals have never seen a rhino in their life, despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In just 2 generations this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals. In honor of World Rhino Day on Sept. 22, I am sharing some of my favorite images of these magnificent, ancient creatures. Together we can work to save them - visit and support the communities that protect them. Keep an eye on my stories - I’m working on a special mystery project this week and will reveal more soon. @nrt_kenya@tusk_org@kenyawildlifeservice@thephotosociety@natgeo@nature_org@nikonusa@sdzsafaripark@nature_africa@synology.official#WorthMoreAlive#protectrhinos#DontLetThemDisappear#rhinos#saverhinos#stoppoaching#kenya#northernkenya#magicalkenya#africa#everydayafrica#worldrhinoday#photojournalism#nikonusa#nikonlove#nikonambassadors#amivitale
